MARKED PANELS, PANELS, PANELS
recent work of Joyce Ozier
950 West 41st Avenue (at Oak)
RECEPTION: Thursday, October 2nd, 7-9 pm
Hi Everyone, It’s almost here! My show opens on the 2nd!
The Story: About this time last year, I began a series of paintings using 6’x1.5′ canvas panels
that could be combined in groups or used individually.
It was an experiment designed to solve a problem. I’d reached a point in my painting where I craved working ‘large’…but didn’t want to have to rent a truck every time I needed to transport my paintings. This way my big works would fit into my car…as well as elevators! Seemed like a good idea at the time. The experiment proved to be more exciting creatively than I’d ever imagined. The works I’ve produced this way have a spontaneity and energy that really excite me.
The Show: Now a group of these paintings will form the core of my first solo show. Curated by well-respected Gallery Director, Linda Lando, the work will be on display at the ZACK GALLERY from October 2nd through November 2nd. We’ll celebrate on Thursday, October 2nd from 7-9 pm at the Opening Reception. I certainly hope you’ll be able to join us.
Plus a Delightful Added Bonus:
It’s also an opportunity to hear Elisa Thorn, the talented Canadian harpist, who’ll be performing at the Opening to honour the work. She has recently returned to Vancouver from a Music Residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts, where she was collaborating with other professional musicians from different parts of the world.
Drop by, say hello, enjoy a glass of wine, and meet some interesting people.
See you on the 2nd!
Until then, JOYCE!
“Joyce Ozier’s SURGE, now on display at VanCity Savings, was stunning…it was able to glower and glimmer at the same time, suggesting thunder, lightning, and then a sudden clearing.”
